41 years in two... Giuditta Franco is a singer who has just turned 21, who was born into a family of musicians, who has perhaps always sung, but who also thought of forming her voice, studying in the Conservatory. The beauty of his velvety timbre, aided by an impeccable vocal technique, reminds us of a forgotten style, that some great of the past have meant that there was also a precise definition for this way of singing, or "crooner". And these great ones range from Frank Sinatra, to Nat "King" Cole, to Tony Bennet, but also, to women, from Lena Horne, to Rosemary Clooney, to the famous Diana Krall and Norah Jones. Giuditta sings with a deep, velvety timbre, characterized by mellow low notes and sparkling high notes, firm and never aggressive and so accompanies you in a dimension of true music, harmonically complex, melodically enchanting. All characteristics that find authentic exaltation and full enhancement from the great repertoire of the classical Bossanova. Pietro Pasinato is not less interesting. 20 years, excellent guitarist who in parallel with rigorous academic studies at the Conservatory, has always maintained curiosity and application also towards other musical genres, from jazz, first of all, to Brazilian music and why not, winking at rock and blues. His technique is not afraid of rivals, it is a "metabolized" technique, which despite his young age allows Pietro to concentrate on the nuances of the specific style that he decides to tackle from time to time: a sort of "elegant Zelig" at the service of great music. Giuditta and Pietro represent a perfect and exclusive mix in the music scene of today’s young people. By no means servants of a commercial system that would push them to move in all other areas, both in terms of content and media spaces, they chose instead of riding the dangerous tiger of masterpieces of the past, a repertoire in which all the greatest of all time have already expressed themselves. It’s a challenge that I know is already won and that I decided to fix in a record that will make it clear to all that audience more curious and attentive, away from the sirens of mass communication. Retrato Brasileiro is the title of one of the most famous songs written by Baden Powell that perfectly describes the meaning of this record: a meaning that in the intimate is even better photographed by the song, famous "Chega de Saudade", or "No More Nostalgia" which in the original text is dedicated to a woman. But we want to read a translated meaning of this text, dedicating the statement "No More Nostalgia" to the Great Music. Nostalgia of the Great Brazilian Music of the Bossa Nova era, by all those people tired of the plastic clichés imposed by the great media circus of the contemporary world: Great Music returns and does so not with an old glory on the sunset boulevard, but with two very young performers who can give life back to the real notes, those that will never die. Good listening!
"Why did we give such a title to this, an album of songs inspired by the landscapes, the history, the secret corners of America? The answer is all in the meaning of that first part of the word, "dream". In these poetical and musical visions, America is not the real country we all know. It is a magical place, even esoteric, where everything that America has given us in the course of her and our history converges and coexists; all distilled in the inspiration of a journey that finds its destination in itself: a destination that we like to sing, a "dream land" that we resolutely demand to inhabit." Lucia Minetti The songs of Dreamland are inspired both by the great tradition of the greatest American Songwriters, from Tom Waits to Ryan Bingham, from Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan, both by the great tradition of the original American Music, from Blues to Jazz. Two wonderful Italian Artists such as Lucia Minetti and Fabio Ranghiero tribute their passion and incredible quality to the Great American Music.
KURT! è un progetto capitanato dalla cantante Valentina Fin che insieme al pianista Mauro Spanò, ha sviluppato una ricerca dedicata alla figura di Kurt Weill, compositore e musicista tedesco del primo Novecento. La formazione cameristica abbina il classico quartetto d'archi al duo pianoforte e voce. Il sestetto, basandosi sulle partiture originali, ha sviluppato arrangiamenti inediti e contemporanei, riproponendo poi le stesse atmosfere a cavallo tra il jazz e la classica contemporanea, in alcuni brani originali scritti appositamente per la formazione ed ispirati ad alcune poesie dello storico amico e collaboratore di Weill, Bertolt Brecht. KURT! is a project led by vocalist Valentina Fin who, together with pianist Mauro Spanò, has developed a research dedicated to the early 20th century German composer and musician Kurt Weill. The chamber ensemble combines the classic string quartet with the piano-voice duo. The sextet, based on the original scores, has developed new and contemporary arrangements, proposing the same atmosphere between jazz and contemporary classical music, in some original compositions too, inspired by some poems of Weill's historic friend and collaborator, Bertolt Brecht.

Sapevo, insomma, che in loro avrei avuto due compagni di avventure in perfetta sintonia con ciò che avevo in mente: qualcosa di nuovo e al tempo stesso un ritorno alle origini. Stefano e io abbiamo raccolto, oltre a tre suoi contributi originali in lingua inglese, i testi di alcuni tra i più bravi poeti e scrittori italiani di questi anni, per i quali ho voluto pormi come una sorta di musa ispiratrice, chiedendo loro di elaborare versi sui grandi temi dell'amore, del desiderio, della lontananza, del ricordo e partecipandovi a mia volta con intuizioni, varianti e suggerimenti. Abbiamo modellato e levigato le parole a noi affidate, in cui ricorrono figure alle quali sono molto affezionata come l'acqua e il viaggio. Successivamente abbiamo affidato i testi alle sapienti mani di Oscar, che li ha messi in musica e orchestrati per quartettod'archi, cesellando le note sui versi con sapienza e profonda ispirazione. Ma soprattutto io ho sperimentato, cantato e interpretato seguendo un’idea di canzone che si distaccasse e prendesse il volo dalle convenzioni; e Stefano e Oscar hanno ascoltato e suggerito a mente aperta. Il risultato, ne siamo convinti, è una volta tanto fedele all'intento di partenza: quello di riallacciare i rapporti tra canzone e poesia, oggi troppo spesso sacrificati sui falsi altari delle rime facili e dell'orecchiabilità. Compagno di viaggi ideale il Quartetto Echos, un gruppo giovane, pieno di entusiasmo, talento e passione e curioso verso i progetti crossover. Garanzia di sempre la grande maestria di Marco Lincetto dietro il banco regia e il suo prezioso apporto come produttore discografico. Questa, dunque, è la nostra idea di canto libero. O forse sarebbe meglio dire "una delle nostre idee", poiché ho la sensazione che ne seguiranno molte altre. Lucia Minetti When I proposed the idea for this album to Oscar del Barba and Stefano Bortolussi, I knew that I was dealing with a composer of rare refinement and creativity and with a poet in whose versesmusicality is an essential element. I knew, in short, that in them I would have two companions of adventures in perfect harmony with what I had in mind: something new and at the same time a return to the origins. Stefano and I have collected, in addition to his three original contributions in English, the texts of some of the best Italian poets and writers of these years. I wanted to be a sort of inspiring muse for them, asking them to dedicate their verses to the great themes of love, desire, longing and memory, and contributing in turn with insights, variants and suggestions. We molded and polished the words entrusted to us, where certainimages that I am particularly fond of — such as the seas and our travels upon them — are deliberately recurrent. Then we entrusted the words in Oscar's masterful hands, and he set them to music and created the score for string quartet, chiseling his notes around the verses with great skill and inspiration. But above all I experimented, sang and interpreted, following an idea of song that would break away and take flight from any convention; and Stefano and Oscar listened and made their suggestions with an open mind. The result, we are convinced, is for once faithful to our original intent: that of resuming the connections between song and poetry, now too often sacrificed on the false altars of easy rhymes and catchiness. In this journey I found an ideal travel companion in the EchosQuartet a young group overflowing with enthusiasm, talent, passion and curiosity towards crossover projects. All this, as always, has been ensured by the great mastery of Marco Lincetto behind the console and by his precious support as a record producer. This, then, is our idea of canto libero. Or perhaps I should say "one of our ideas", since I have the feeling that many more will follow. Lucia Minetti

It is much more effective to distinguish the music into beautiful music or bad one, rather than by gender. It is not enough to be born in the 18th century to be considered an interesting author, in fact some of them have been completely forgotten. Recovery operations of alleged masterpieces of the past are sometimes dictated by philological or musicologist intent _ therefore scientific _ rather than artistic. This album, instead, proposes a very valuable repertoire of great artistic and emotional impact, that of the French Chansonniers of the Twentieth Century, representing a very important chapter in the history of music thanks to their ability to create a kind of bohémien lifestyle with an element of political commitment and of social criticism, always expressed with poetic style (M.Priore’s quotation). This is the reason why many academics affirm that the student protests of 1968 could begin only in France. I believe that this beautiful CD, will be appreciated by cultured persons and will inspire the younger generation, today more than ever at risk of flattening, on how to search for and find a new sensibility, a renewed zest for life and a deep awareness that “Freedom is participation “. My sincere congratulations to Lucia Minetti, without a doubt one of the best interpreters of the songwriters on the world stage, and a proud thanks to the teachers and students of the Padua Conservatory “C. Pollini” who have made a contribution of great elegance and musicality to the realization of Fil Rouge. Leopoldo Armellini, Director of the Conservatory C. Pollini of Padua Voglio ringraziare prima di tutto Marco Lincetto e Leopoldo Armellini che hanno reso possibile questo lavoro. Andrea Zani, musicista (e persona) di grandissimo valore e talento, i musicisti del Conservatorio Pollini di Padova, nuovi straordinari compagni di viaggio. Oscar Del Barba per la sua generosità e sensibilità di scrittura. Stefania Marchesi per il suo prezioso aiuto. Massimo Forchino, Daniele Bricalli, Tommaso Ferigo, Alberto Reina per il loro contributo. E soprattutto ringrazio Christian e il nostro piccolo Leo, che sono per me fonte di ispirazione ed emozione, sempre. A loro due questo disco è dedicato.

Rosella Caporale, voce Stefania Todesco, pianoforte Valentina Todesco, violoncello 24bit / 88.2kHz original live-in-studio recording made at Villa Todesco, Villa del Conte, Italy, on June 20th, 21st, 2015 The musical project was born in 2014 and it dedicates a selected musical pieces taken from the extensive repertory of the Neapolitan Music, from the famous melodies like I te vurria vasà, Era de Maggio, La Tarantella of Rossini, to the ancient piece as il Canto delle lavandaie del Vomero (1200) ‘Sto core mio (1300), Fenesta Vascia (1500), Lo Guarracino (1700).

It’s always difficult to talk about something that involves you directly. Like, for example, of an album for which you take care of the artistic production. And an album, if you have decided to devote yourself to it, to offer it your time, your skills, your commitment, is like a son. Although you didn’t write it, or perform it, you end up being part of it. I have produced about twenty albums, I could’ve produce more, maybe, but I always chose to work with and for the quality. Presenting this album, this one, is even more difficult because we are talking about two sons, plus a few adopted ones. It’s not a secret, Jacopo, Sick 4 Milk’s leader, is my son. I have known some of his adventure pals since they had just started to wear long trousers, some since when I still had the slight hope of keeping some hair on my head. Have I artistically produced my son’s album? No, even though there wouldn’t be anything wrong with this: I produced Sick 4 Milk’s first album, a band of which I’ve been a fan since the first concerts at some roman pubs. I’m hypercritical with my sons, with the legitimated and the adopted. I have been so for all these years (not so many, but a lot compared to the age of the band’s members), until, as passionate and professional in the “music and similar” business, I understood that this talent, obvious since long time ago, penetrated deep down these guys’ souls, leading them to an artistic maturity that some groups more from my time than theirs, still haven’t reached. I didn’t decide to do an album: chatting one night with Marco Lincetto, I asked him to listen to a piece, the first one in unplugged version that was on youtube, just to have his opinion. Marco, after a few minutes wrote to me: Excellent, I want to do this album. I didn’t have to struggle or convince anybody and this was a great relief. And it gave me confort in my assumption of knowing music well and of recognising talents, in other words of knowing how to do my beautiful job. I obviously knew that the Velut Luna recording would have been of high quality, it was perfect indeed. Then come what may, these guys are talented, not only in music, and this being talented in many other things other than music, is in my opinion the reason why at their young age they already look like a mature and famous group. Because I never believed in talent without intelligence and knowledge or at least the desire to learn. And forgive me if I badly quoted Miles Davis. If I may say, I will end this short presentation with a genetic-affective-animistic note: The acoustic ovation that Jacopo plays is the one that belonged to his uncle Danilo who left it prematurely as an inheritance to his unworthy brother who passed it to his son (a very long loan) It is the number 1037, the first to arrive to Italy. And in the last 35 years it played very well its role treading the stage all over Italy and around the world without ever missing a beat.
PHOTOGRAPHS & MEMORIES TRIBUTE TO JIM CROCE
Pop. Original compositions by: J. Croce, C. Fox, N. Gibel, F. Mazzaron, A. Arcuri, M. Muehleisen, F. Ranghiero. All arrangements by F. Ranghiero. Barbara Belloni Voice; Four Fried Fish: Fabio Ranghiero Grandpiano & Hammond, Flamiano Mazzaron Guitars, Alessandro Arcuri Bass & Double Bass, Alberto Toninelli Drums. 24bit/88.2 kHz original live-in-studio recorded in Velut Luna Studio, Preganziol, Italy, on July 14, 15, 16 - 2012. I discovered Jim Croce and his songs in a hot afternoon, at the beginning of the summer in 1980, while I was preparing my school leaving examination. I soon loved his world, made of little stories, never banal, constructed on “that” music I already loved, a masterly mix of country and blues: I immediately became aware that, sooner or later ,I should have had to do something more to keep alive the memory of this sincere and nice musician. Since then 32 years are passed... and 39 years since that awful night, the 20th of September 1973, during which a cruel destiny, concealed between the wings of the Beechcraft D-18 and the only Peacan Tree that separated the plane from the open sky, took away Jim, and here I am, at last, to pay tribute to an artist who has been and is important to me and to many other people, who loved and will always love his songs. So long, Jim ! Marco Lincetto About the “Memories” Choosing among Jim’s many songs for this CD hasn’t been painless. It was clear since the beginning that many of his most beautiful pieces couldn’t have found the deserved space. Besides, as arranger, I wanted to find a way to involve even more the other musicians in the project. The “memories” are so originated, with the request to create a short personal piece inspired by one or more songs of the American singer-songwriter. The task of the listeners is to close their eyes and recognize some notes or phrasing concealed in the memory. Fabio Ranghiero

WARNING! This is a live-in-studio recording, using vintage instruments from Sixties and Seventies: so it will not be strange, if you will listen to anykind of “isss” or “uhmmm” from Marshall or Fender tube amplifier, or “natural distortion” from Leslie amplifier of original Hammond B3… Each recording has been appropriately realized, on original arrangement ad hoc, by Marco Lincetto at the Magister Area Studios in Preganziol (with the exception of “El pueblo...”, recorded by Alejandro Martinez in his own studio in Padua), using 24bit/88.2kHz digital recorder; and Marco Lincetto also have mixed and mastered each piece of this CD. Marco Lincetto, Velut Luna owner, says: "The choice and the sequence of the pieces presented in this CD is apparently devoid of a musical common line. The other title thought for this project, till a short while ago, was “The wild strawberries patch”: indeed the meaning of this collection must be searched in a joining motive different from music in itself ... that is in myself, who conceived it and who, in this Anno Domini 2011, is going to be fifty years old. Initially this CD shouldn’t even be published, being my personal gift to myself for my fifth birthday; but then my collaborators suggested that probably many other people, contemporary and not, could have identify themselves and gain satisfaction from the publication of this material, and therefore it was decided to insert it in the now large Velut Luna catalogue. For all the important anniversaries (and “fifty” years are undoubtedly so) some people treat themselves to a precious object, a big party or an epic journey. I decided to treat myself to a journey in my memory, through the rereading of those musical pieces that contributed to my character-building, in the widest meaning of the word. They mostly are the songs that I listened to when I was 15 to 20 years old, and must be told that I was a rather eclectic boy: in those years I was studying the clarinet, due to my passion for American swing music of the Forties, and Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller were my heroes (and that’s why “Polka dots and moonbeams”). The Seventies were passing, but I was grown up very close to my aunt, who was a little older than me and who has been a teenager during the end of the Sixties, and this, in some way, left me a very strong “imprinting” of the culture of the wonderful “season of love”. Therefore here we have some of the symbolic songs of that legendary period: “Like a rolling stone”, “San Francisco”, “California dreaming”, “The sounds of silence”, “Jumping Jack Flash”. Another insane passion of mine bound to those years was the poetic spirit, very “maudit” like, of those Italian singer-songwriters belonging to the so-called “Genoese school” of which, undoubtedly, Gino Paoli was the principal standard bearer. Therefore two symbol pieces of him couldn’t be missing here: “Sapore di sale” and “Senza fine”. Every teenager ends by falling in love, more or less Platonic-like, with a movie star ( perhaps nowadays boys fall in love with TV soubrettes ... but this is another story, and it’s another epoch ...), and it occurred to me too, and I must say that I treated myself rather well, since the object of my desire was a true icon of female glamour and fascination of all time, that is the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe ... and I believe that “Bye bye, baby” best represents her. But then the “contemporary” reality of my adolescence, that is in the middle of the Seventies, could not possibly not include the great English rock (here represented by the splendid and longing “Wish you were here” by Pink Floyd) and the deep ideals of rebellion and freedom, of which the Chilean people and the band of Inti Illimani particularly rose as a simbol: “El pueblo unido jamas serà vencido” was sung by the students in the squares, all together, with the left fist up, wearing the Eskimo and the Clarks. And finally the singer-songwriters of my generation, which here I decided to represent with whom I felt, more than any other, alike me: Edoardo Bennato, with his masterpiece “Un giorno credi”, from his first album. At the beginning of the Eighties, the ending of my adolescence and my first steps in adult age coincided with the discovery of a musical world that, by my point of view, was “alternative”, among which the “ethnic” music. Therefore comes the Brazil, with its bossa-nova, here represented by the wonderful “Agua de Março” by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Finally, quite a different matter are the two pieces that respectively open and close the CD: “Stars Spangled Banner”, that is the national hymn of the United States of America, and “Journey of hope” by Guido Marzorati. Paraphrasing a fragment of the renowned prologue by Woody Allen’s movie “Manhattan”, I can just say, with ill-concealed pride: “I love America and I have always loved it”. As the years go by, my life can more and more be considered as a long interval between a journey in U.S.A. and the successive one. Instead, the piece sung by Guido Marzorati completes the concept expressed by my love for America and for its ideals: that is the projection to the future, with the constant hope and the firm belief of a better world".
